PayKey's smartphone keyboard enables retail banks to deliver payment and some banking services inside messaging apps, addressing concerns about being disintermediated from this emerging channel of consumer activity.


  • After a one-time process of switching to the new keyboard, consumers can use it as normal to write their messages in the social network of their choice, but it also contains a bank-branded button that launches its menu of supported financial services functions. It is designed and developed for both Android and iOS platforms.
